Creamy sundried tomato and roasted pumpkin pasta

If you're watching your weight, I'm sorry.

If you don't like rich, flavourful food, well, I'm sorry for that too.

If you don't like easy pasta dinners, then you're nuts.


Ingredients:

1/2 cup sundried tomatoes

200g pumpkin, cut into small cubes

1 cup stock

200ml cream (I used light.. )

pepper

fresh basil leaves

penne pasta

Method:

1. Put the pumpkin in a tray and spray with oil. Bake in preheated, fairly hot oven (200-210C) for 15-12 minutes until cooked. I was in a hurry and threw them under the grill/broiler for a few minutes each side.

2. Prepare pasta according to packet directions.

3. Meanwhile, simmer chopped sundried tomatoes in the stock about 10 minutes until plump. After 5 minutes, add the cream and pepper.

3. Add pumpkin to cream mixture, and tear basil leaves over. Stir to mix.

4. Pour over the pasta.

  7. This would be soooo good with semi dried tomatoes subbed (I like them because they are a little sweeter, softer and less tangy! :)

  8. Yes, absolutely! The sauce just wouldn't have the same depth of flavour, but there would be juicy little plump morsels of goodness... a great tradeoff :)
